Immediately after the crash in West Sussex in March 2014, Parbat was found by people with his trousers and underpants around his ankles. Watling was found seriously injured.
During the trial Parbat denied having sex as he drove, and said he instead struggled to get Watling off him and nothing sexual happened. He did suffer facial injuries in the crash and gave a blood test that showed 102 mgs of 10 percent alcohol per 100 milliltres of blood, the drink-drive limit in Britain being 80 mgs.
Watling’s devastated family said they are relieved some kind of justice has been done.
